Answer Outline
Title  State Spelling Challenge Prizes and the Number of Participants (2010-2011)

Introduction  Table 1 shows the State Spelling Challenge Prizes (2010-2011) and Table 2
shows the number of participants in secondary schools (2010-2011).

Overview/Overall trend  The increase in the prize money for secondary schools in the State Spelling
Challenge from 2010 to 2011 might have influenced the increase in the
number of participants in 2011.

 In 2010, primary and secondary schools’ first prize money was the highest at
RM2000 and RM3000 respectively and a similar trend was recorded for both
schools in 2011.

 However, the lowest prize money went to the overall best individual for both
schools at RM5000 each in 2010.

 The third prize for primary school remained unchanged at RM1000 but there
was a rise of RM1000 from RM2000 to RM3000 for secondary school over
the two years.

 Both primary and secondary overall best group prize money doubled from
RM1300 to RM2600 and from RM1800 to RM3600 respectively between
2010 and 2011.

 Secondary school’s second prize money had a higher increase from RM2500
(2010) to RM4000 (2011) than primary school’s which increased from
RM1500 to RM2000 respectively in the two years.

 Federal Territory recorded the most participants in 2010 and 2011 with 29
and 54 respectively

 Meantime, Pahang charted the least with 11 and 22 participants each in 2010
and 2011.

 The almost doubled growth in the number of secondary school participants

in all states in 2011 was probably due to the increase in prize money from
2010 and 2011.

Conclusion  In conclusion, the increase in prize money from 2010 to 2011 has an effect
on the number of participants in secondary school in 2011.
